Default Phasors in OpenFoam to simulate AC current flow

I need to simulate the current flow through various molten layers in a furnace, between 3 electrodes. The supply is 3-phase AC current. I do not want to have to simulate down to the time scale for the AC current so I would like to use phasors to represent the electrical supply. Once I have this, I think I will just use a modified laplacianFoam to simulate the current flow through the molten layers.

Does anyone know if OpenFoam supports the use of phasors/imaginary numbers in any way?

It would be great if I could figure this out!
